Topo Designs Men's Global Shorts


Lightweight and ready to go, the Global Shorts are must-haves for warmer weather. The quick-drying fabric and relaxed fit keep you comfortable and move with you. Made with quick-drying fabric with the perfect amount of stretch, the Global Shorts are great for a jog through town and pack down to almost nothing for those trips across the pond. A drawstring elastic waist keeps the shorts fitting their best, whether you over-indulge at the cafe or trim down for the trail.

  • 7″ inseam
  • Relaxed fit
  • 2-way stretch nylon with DWR finish


I absolutely love these shorts and let me keep it real. I’m the kind of guy who can drop or gain 5 pounds based off whether I’m drinking beer that week or water. I’m not proud of it. But I often find myself with a pair of pants or shorts that fit me perfectly one week and then don’t fit me a week later. So these shorts are perfect for me. They’re like the popular Patagonia Baggies in style but without being so baggy. They have a much more tapered, narrow fit. And the best part is they are DWR treated meaning they are super water resistant and quick drying when they do get wet. Most of my days, particularly in the summer, I inevitably end up in the water a few times a week after work. Whether it’s swimming or fishing at the river. So I can wear these to work comfortably all day long and go straight to the river without having to make a huge wardrobe change. Then when I’m done at the river, they’re dry by the time I get to the restaurant for dinner. Love these things and have become my staple short.
